The Bristol and South West tech industry is currently booming and we’re all aware that finding talent and keeping them has never been so difficult. We also know that careers change, people can learn and there’s a wealth of amazing people in the area who simply didn’t take up tech as an option. That, along with a variety of Universities, Colleges and training establishments in the area all creating talented tech graduates who we would love to stay in the region.
With all of this in mind we decided that we could help sort out some of these problems by working together so with HBB, WTHub and Desklodge we came up with the power of three, set out to curate a Careers Fair and named it Tech³Shed (everything is Bristol is called Shed so we thought we may as well follow the trend!). For our second careers fair in November we’ve partnered withTechnotopia and the local WISE campaign for the Bristol Tech Fair and Tiny Giant are handling our publicity.
We know that the best way of finding a great job, or finding a great team member is far easier in a relaxed atmosphere and through getting to know them. We also know that recruitment fairs can be intimidating and that the world of tech can be slightly confusing for those on the outside. So we decided that we would put the two together and to help demystify things, introduce trainers, people in the industry and other *TBC options to help get you into tech and invite our members down to chat to the candidates and show what they have to offer.
We will also be publicising the jobs that companies are offering on our JobsBoard so you are prepared and plan to carry this on throughout the year for our sponsors so keep an eye on.
Please note this is a NO RECRUITER event – please see our reasoning here
So keep the 9th November free in your diaries, we can’t wait and are counting the days (and hours, minutes & seconds)
